The Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin (AHW) endowment is dedicated to improving the health of the people in Wisconsin through community-MCW academic partnerships, research that addresses the leading causes of death and disability, and innovative educational programs.
A collaboration of more than five academic and health institutions, the Consortium aims to advance health care economics and innovation in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Medical College of Wisconsin's vision is to develop a community medical education program that both addresses the need for providers in underserved communities across Wisconsin and employs an immersive teaching model that will reduce student debt and allow students quicker entry practice. Currently, there are site locations in Green Bay and Central Wisconsin.
